Nolan Barth's rating of the film Safety Last!

Harold Lloyd is right up there with the iconic legends of the silent film era like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. With Safety Last! Lloyd is at the top of his game. The clock tower sequence is one of the most iconic set pieces in all of cinematic history and it consists of just some brilliant stunt work! This film is filled with some brilliant visual gags and is a must watch for any film fan!
